So I did a total suspension refurbishing for my 88 McLaren new everything except for the springs.... in hopes of fixing a slight sag in the rear. as I was going through it man oh man was things bad in there all bushings and spring isolators were rotted and in need of replacement after all was done it raised the rear end up maybe a half inch at most but still low imho. So now Im thinking its got to be either weak springs, frame issue, or this is how they are and im being too picky. I was going to upload a pic of my ride but cant seem to figure out how to do that in this forum so im going to leave a link to another forum where I have the picture posted but then knowing my luck that wont be allowed either lol If I do need a new springs in the rear where do I get them at? are they just factory ford B lowering springs or are the McLaren springs now obsolete and I'll need to go with a full new set from ford or aftermarket?

my post where there is a pic of my saggy rear: http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forums/5-0l-tech/909010-saggy-rear-normal-fox-worn-springs.html#post7976506[/img]

springs control ride height look at ford racing springs they give a good ride height without dropping the car to much every thing else you put in is really good stuff
